Details

El-Ghandour has refereed the 2002 African Cup of Nations final (Cameroon vs Senegal), the second leg of the 2002 African Cup Winners' Cup final (Kotoko (Gha) 2:1 WAC (Mar)), and five successive African Cup of Nations, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, and 2002. He is the first African referee to run a match in the UEFA European Football Championship. He has also participated in one Olympic Games, one FIFA Confederation Cup (2001), and one AFC Asian Cup.

He also refereed in two FIFA World Cups, France 1998 and Korea/Japan 2002 [cite web

He is also the first Egyptian referee to play as a professional referee (Japanese League 1999)

Ghandour was involved in the controversial South Korea - Spain quarterfinals in the 2002 World Cup where he was responsible for a number of embarrassing decisions, including giving a goal kick to South Korea after Joaquín stopped the ball in front of the line, oh which led to the Spanish being denied two goals. Eventually Spain was beaten on penalties. The last penalty that Spain missed was also seen as controversial, Joaquín's shot was blocked by Lee Woon-Jae who stepped off his line before the ball was actually touched, breaking the rules, there was, however, no action taken. After the match there was international condemnation of the refereeing conduct and decisions [cite web

] . Allegations were rife that the match was fixed, something that the FIFA officials brushed away. Ghandour was rumoured to have received a car from the FIFA vice-president Chung Mong-joon, a South Korean, in exchange for favouring the home side in the quarterfinals [cite web

] . These allegations prompted Ghandour to threaten legal action. Eventually Ghandour chose to end his illustrious career under a cloud of suspicion.

Ghandour also refereed in a controversial match between hosts UAE and Iraq in the 1996 Asian Cup. The UAE eventually won 1-0 after extra time, however many clear decisions went against the Iraqis, including a UAE defender punching the ball out of the area. The UAE faced Kuwait in the semi-final, with the Kuwaiti team having announced that they would withdraw had Iraq qualified.
